(Jenkintown, Pa) -- Hillary Clinton is vowing to address pay fairness for women if elected president, joining with women at a suburban Philadelphia cafe Friday in the days before the Pennsylvania primary.

Clinton says she is excited that Harriet Tubman will eventually be on the $20 dollar bill but adds that it's "not enough to be on the money - you need to be making the money."

The Democratic presidential candidate was joined in campaigning across Pennsylvania by her rival Bernie Sanders who made two stops in the mid-state Friday, one at Gettysburg College, the other at Millersville University.

Not to be outdone, on the Republican side, Ted Cruz chose the northeastern part of the state to campaign. He was seen in Williamspoprt and Scranton.

Cruz and Sanders are scheduled to make appearances Saturday morning in the Pittsburgh area.
